What’s the Latest on North Korea?

What’s happening in North Korea?

President Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un continue to threaten each other; meanwhile, their respective militaries are gearing up. The U.S. conducted a joint military exercise with South Korea on Tuesday, sending two American combat bombers to fly over the Korean peninsula alongside two South Korean fighter jets. North Korea has done its homework with six nuclear tests as well as two missiles launched over Japan.

Are we preparing for war?  

It’s not looking good. White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders confirmed on Friday that North Korea is an “issue,” while Trump tweeted ominously over the weekend about the hermit regime, saying that diplomacy hasn’t helped the North Korea situation and “only one thing will work.”

Glenn’s take:

We’re so used to watching Trump and Kim spar back and forth that “it’s easy to miss just how close to war we get every single day,” Glenn said. But don’t be fooled by how “routine” it feels. North Korea is a threat.

GLENN: Strategic bombers were flying over South Korea yesterday. Two HEP B1 lancers flanked by Japanese and South Korean fire jets buzzed North Korea in yet another show of force yesterday. Perhaps the weirdest thing about all of this is how routine all of this is beginning to feel.

This wasn't an elaborate air show, or even a recon mission to take pictures. This was a mission to deter against nuclear war.

Are we even following this anymore? The tough talk and the saber rattling between Kim Jong-un and President Trump have become so common, it's easy to miss just how close to war we literally get every single day.

Yesterday, take this, for example. It was the 72nd anniversary of the founding of North Korea's whirling workers HEP party. Kim Jong-un typically uses these holidays to have, you know, those big, you know, parades where, hey, look at all of our cool missiles. And, look, we can get everybody to wear a hat. And it will spell out something like, happy anniversary to us. But he also uses it for nuclear missile tests. And the last threat we heard was a possible hydrogen bomb test over the Pacific.

Now, Trump has set the stage just last week when he said, we're at the calm before the storm.

And everybody began to wonder, what does that mean, Mr. President?

Friday, the press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, she confirmed that there were world issues. And that world issue, namely, was North Korea. Over the weekend, Trump doubled down and gave an ominous tweet. He said, you know, democracy hadn't worked for 25 years. And that, quote, only one thing will work.

So now, early yesterday morning, he called for a meeting with the Defense Secretary Mattis and Secretary of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. And they discussed, quote, a range of options to respond militarily to North Korea aggression.

Now, they've had these planning sessions 100 times since the crisis began.

Why did they pick Tuesday morning for another one? And then just a few hours later, B1 HEP bombers and Japanese and South Korean fighter jets are flying over the Korean peninsula.

Was it a show of force, or are we getting close to waiting for an attack order?

The threat of war with North Korea is greater than it has been in 50 years. And Kim Jong-un apparently got the message yesterday and backed down.

Will he continue to back down? Next time.

CONTROL FREAKS: The Great Reset Overlords Who Will Ru(i)n Your Life

"All rich countries should move to 100% synthetic beef. You can get used to the taste difference," said holy anointed billionaire Bill Gates. Green activism has been around for decades. But what used to be wacky has now worked its way into the world's power structure. You must believe the science. You cannot question the science.

The Texas power failure provided America with a disturbing and deadly preview of the Great Reset. But Bill Gates, AOC, and other Democrats say this only proves we need to enforce MORE green policies.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck reveals how deep the Great Reset tentacles reach into government and business to strangle freedom and their efforts to control every aspect of your private life.

Dr. Ben Carson's Prescription to Heal America | Ep 98

To the Left, "unity" means "destroy everyone we disagree with." But Dr. Ben Carson has another message: "We are not each other's enemies." As the Biden administration insists America is systemically racist, Dr. Carson's life proves just how far we've come. Despite facing poverty as a child, he became a renowned neurosurgeon, a candidate for president, and former secretary of Housing and Urban Development — one of the only Cabinet members to survive all four years of the Trump administration.

He joins Glenn to review his time in the administration, including as part of the White House's coronavirus task force, and how he discovered "the swamp is deeper and wider than I expected." But above all, he urges Americans to take courage and stand for our freedoms — and previews his newest venture to do just that as founder and chairman of the American Cornerstone Institute: "What version of America do we want?"

Unmasking the OTHER Deadly Pandemic: What's Killing Our Kids

There is an all-out assault on the social fabric of our country. The kids are NOT all right. In the name of "progress," we're destroying their minds with Marxist lies. In the name of "safety," we're destroying their souls by keeping them locked down.

On his Glenn TV special this week, Glenn Beck takes on the national suicide that the Left is committing by destroying our culture and way of life and how it's also leading to actual suicide of our kids. Experts on the front lines expose how the lies of critical race theory are crippling our children's future and provide tools for parents to fight back.

Finally, Glenn hears from a parent who tragically lost his teen son, who took his own life due to COVID isolation. He has a powerful message for parents, teachers, and politicians who he says are failing our kids.

IBM's Role in Killing Jews & Lessons for Big Tech | Edwin Black | Ep 97

Edwin Black is the son of Holocaust survivors and an investigative journalist with awards and best-selling books translated into 20 languages in nearly 200 countries. His book "IBM and the Holocaust" examines high tech's role in killing Jews during the Holocaust and what it can teach us about the dangers of Big Tech today.

Edwin has spent enough time in the media to see all of its warts (there are a lot). And he's speaking out about it and its role in ignoring history at our nation's peril.

He also discusses Disney actress Gina Carano, fired for comparing conservative persecution to the Nazi treatment of the Jews. Our culture is being erased. Our ideals and values are being censored and mocked. Our history is being erased. With another human extermination on the horizon in China, Edwin challenges this with bravery.
